As a newbie to road cycling can anyone explain what is the difference between
"" replica "" and "team " clothing ?

Seen two pairs of bib shorts on the Giant site with nearly a £100 price difference



  • The team issue should, in theory, be the same version that the team sponsored riders wear (assuming this is Giant Alpecin kit?). Replica is just a cheaper version of the kit, usually using different materials with less of the (supposed) "technical features".

    In truth there won't be much difference between the two, certainly not a hundred quids worth!
